east, just in time for christmas. meteorologist julie marten is watching it all for us now from weather channel headquarters. julie, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, lester. the storm in california could bring a white christmas to parts of arkansas around oklahoma, places that haven't seen that happen in over 80 years. here's a look then. the system will spill out into the plains by christmas morning, dumping another foot of snow on the denver metro area by the holiday. now, starting in the predawn hours of christmas, we are looking at possible tornado outbreaks from south texas all the way to southwest georgia. watching that carefully. beyond that the storm moves to the northeast, potentially causing travel woes from nashville to cleveland and d.c. we do expect mostly rain wednesday into thursday as the system moves into new england, with snow on the back end of that. so, while the midweek travel will be tricky across the country, those conditions will improve by the end of the week as millions head home or elsewhere to ring in the new year. lester? >> that is good news. julie,
of 100 on the f.d.a. shortage list. >> axelrod: jon, congress passed legislation last july giving the f.d.a. more authority to deal with cancer drug shortages. i'm wondering what's become of that. >> reporter: jim, that new law has made a big difference, and the key provision is the requirement that drug manufacturers let the f.d.a. know when there's an impending shortage. since that new law has passed, there has been a doubling of the notifications. the f.d.a. can increase imports from abroad and tell other manufacturers in the united states to step up production. so it's made a big difference. now, another provision in that law is that the f.d.a. set up a task force looking at other possible solutions to the drug shortage crisis, and they're required to submit that report to congress by this coming july. >> axelrod: dr. jon lapook, thank you. china now has the longest high- speed train line in the world. it runs 1,400 miles from beijing to the city of guangjo, about the distance from new york to miami. the chinese train can make the trip in eight hours. it would take amtrak 30 hours.
of our country this last summer. how is it, you might wonder, that we had devastating fires in july and august and into september, devastating drought, and we still haven't approved the disaster assistance? well, i would say it's 100% unacceptable. if you lost your ranch in a fire, if you lost your fencing, if you lost your livestock, and the program that would have helped, that has always been in place for disaster assistance wasn't reauthorized, then you've been stranded since june or since july or since august. and perhaps in that interim, you've lost your farm. perhaps you lost your ranch. perhaps you've mortgaged everything to try to hold on. and yet, here is the u.s. senate saying, hey, it's okay that we're not helping you now because you know what? we're going to help you in the farm bill. well, where is the farm bill? it's not on the president's desk. it isn't in route to the president's desk. it hasn't even been brought up on the floor of the u.s. house. a bipartisan group of senators in this body approved a farm bill and had the disaster relief for our ranchers and farmers

back in july with the threshold of those tax hikes being at the $250,000 level. and that they could kind of say to the house, now the ball is in your court, you have to deal with this, it's still very much a possibility, don, that this doesn't work out, that we go over the fiscal cliff, and that was reflected today on the sunday shows from both democrats and republicans, take a listen. >> passing plan b the other night would not have changed the outcome, we're going to go over the cliff before, we're going to go over the cliff now. you cannot negotiate with someone that doesn't want to negotiate. >> in the aftermath of the house republicans rejecting speaker boehn boehner's plan b, i feel it's more likely we will go over the cliff than not, and that -- if we allow that to happen, it will be the most colossal consequence shall act of congressional irresponsibleability in a long time. maybe ever in american history. >> officially, the president is expected to be here -- or is supposedly here in hawaii through the new year, i think the expectation at this point is that with congress re
in july and for december 72 points. in july, it was 82. so we're seeing the sentiment decline over the last couple of months. also, consumer confidence at the lowest it's been in five months so really seeing that kind of permeate over the last couple of months and especially goins forward and we have also seen some mild weather over the last couple of months so especially in the midwest and the northeast so i think that's going to have something to do with the fact consumers aren't spending that much. >> you would think that because thanksgiving, we think back to november, fell earlier this year. >> right. we had more time to spend. >> we had more money spending and would think that the number would be a little fluffier. >> you would think. think about what was happening in those 31 days where people supposed to spend. people were recovering from sandy. all we have been bombarded with is negative news and newtown and i think weighing on the minds of the american consumer more than we think. >> thank you. appreciate your time. >>> president obama in hawaii with his family and fiscal
strategist and a former campaign aide for president george w. bush, julie roginsky is former political adviser to new jersey senate frank lautenberg. good to see you both. >> good to see you. gregg: didi, smoot-holly was passed decades ago for the purpose of putting tariff limits on incoming products. do we need to reexplore that? >> yeah. this was, this was back in the '60s. i mean, this was ancient history. why should these workers who get paid very well also get on top of that the booty of $15-$16,000 more. for what? this is just an extra fee and extra goodies per container. what this was back in the '60s was a way to help there be more workers, it was a deal done with the unions and the ports so they wouldn't use as much equipment and so they wouldn't be as efficient so they could keep their union workers. it's outdated, and it's wrong and, really, it's terrible -- gregg: julie, what do you think? >> i think if we're talking about smoot-holly which is a different issue just raised by didi, but, yeah, i think the president will probably intervene, and he did last time on the west co
of the new york city area. weather channel's julie martin standing by at laguardia. what's the seen now, julie? >> reporter: craig, in fact, half of those cancellations have come from the new york airports and 180, jfk, laguardia and newark as of this hour. in terms of the delays we are not seeing them mount as much as we would have thought at this time and one of the reasons that snow not quite working its way into the tri-state area just yet, but we are, nonetheless, seeing low ceilings and visibility issues and certainly wet runways as a result of the storm which will continue to crank along throughout the afternoon and the evening before winding down overnight into tomorrow and really impacting cities like boston which could pick up a foot. i would expect to see major delays for you. here in new york, we are anticipating those delays to continue to climb throughout the evening. one of the good things with this storm, versus the storm earlier this week is the winds are lighter with this so it won't be as much of an aviation problem. nonetheless, if you are traveling you will want to
travel in to the week. julie martin at new york's laguardia airport. >> reporter: well, a very busy day here at the new york airports but not as busy in terms of cancelations fortunately as yesterday. in fact, system wide yesterday we saw about 1,600 flights canceled across the u.s., hundreds of them were here at the new york airports but as of today so far just about 50 or so in and out of laguardia. about the same for jfk and newark. one of the big reasons, the weather is improving. we're still seeing some low ceilings here but the rain has all but moved out of new york city and those winds which have been the big problem have died down in to the teens so that's really no issue for the pilots here. what is still an issue, though, is the fact that so many people are traveling for the holidays, trying to get home from the holidays or get to the next holiday destination for the new year and unfortunately we have another storm system that's going to be working its way in to the northeast in the next couple of days, just in time for the new yore's holiday so, in fact, we could see more str

the right to own guns is more important. opinion was essentially divided in july after the deadly movie theater shootings in aurora, colorado. 47% said it was more important to protect gun ownership. 46% said it was more important to protect gun rights. a big part of the debate stems from the number of guns in this country. there are more than 297 million privately-owned firearms in the u.s. according to a congressional research service report. the gun industry here is thriving with profits doubling during the great recession. u.s. firearms remain one of the most successful industries in the world. stock prices of the two largest publicly traded firearm companies skyrocketed from the president's inauguration to the latest high. smith & wesson up over 260% and industry leader sturm, ruger and company up over 500%. just to give you an example here of comparison. you would have made less money if you bought a share of tech darling apple which had a lower gain than sturm, ruger & company, but you didn't have to buy stock to win. industry jobs commonly reward employees with a $140,000 salary
. [video clip] >> we took that vote back on july 25. it did not originate in the house. it has no chance of becoming law. that is what i said back on july 25. we allow that vote and i said we knew it did not pass constitutional muster and that democrats would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires if they were serious and as i called on them to do last week. the so-called senate bill is no more than a glorified sense of the senate revolution. let's put that talking point aside. host: mitch mcconnell -- or is a story from politico.com, "why they will not go over the cliff." "they see an advantage in negotiating with republicans that will feel free not to raise taxes once the rates have gone out. the president is pulling in the mid 50's. there is still time for the dynamic to shift. speed banner will stress the house has passed legislation to avert the entire fiscal cliff. there is an ad we want to point out in "the new york times" and "the washington post." together" rds "come as a way to send a message to congress.

while broadening the base. david: all right. now, that was in july of 2011 and then a couple of week-- a couple of months later came out with the budget, saying the tax system should be simplified and work for all americans with lower rates and brackets. the president has come out time and again saying we shouldn't raise any kind of rates. is anybody calling him on that? >> well, a lot of republicans are wondering what's different now? we still have a sluggish economy, why the change in position? , but the president was out on the campaign trail, time and time again saying individuals and families specifically making over $250,000 a year should be-- should get tax increases so he's sticking to that position, like i mentioned before, the white house seems to be signaling that they would move in the direction of 400,000, those making over 400,000 increases there which may be something that congress could agree on and get through. but again, we're going to have the conservative wave in the republican house saying no increases, so, boehner's going to be in in a position do i get democrat
been worked out some time ago. august of the end of july the house-passed tax bill and senate over to the senate. there were free taken up an amended and take it back. that's the way things usually work. revenue bills must originate the house of representatives. we get to work six months ago. a work product six there and wait for the senate to take something up. here is what is troubling about all this. we will get through this this week however it turns out or next week, however turns out. you are right about the debt limit. that is going to recess well, and then just after that have an appropriations lapse. so the first three months of the year you have fiscal cliff, debt limit, and appropriations laps all staring the american people in the face. i get it that people are sick of this combat at the same time it is because we have such an nasa's spending problem is the reason why these things are occurring the way they are. tom: you heard the president come out and talk to the white house press corps. he talked about maintain a middle-class tax cuts. he did not define what that is
that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american peop

the in"under god" were added to the pledge of allegiance, it he proclaimed the fourth of july and national day of prayer. on that day, eisenhower fished in the morning, both in the afternoon, and played bridge in the evening. there were prayers -- perhaps when the chief executive faced a daunting putt. this was not his first foray into the darkened ground of the relationship between religion and american politics. three days before christmas in 1952, president elect ike made a speech in which she said "our form of government has no sense unless it is founded in the deeply felt religious faith and i do not care what it is." he received a much ridicule from his cultured despise years. his professed indifference to the major of the religious faith. it is the first part of the statement that deserves continuing attention. certainly many americans, perhaps the majority of them, agreed that democracy or at least our democracy, which is based on a belief in natural rights, presupposes religious faith. people believe this that all people are endowed by their creator with certain unali
, on the floor we call it the growth dividend. if you look at a chart for our ten-year starting on july 26th, and i pick july 26th because that was mario draghi's big day. he said anything it takes. as you look at our rates over that period, then look at the boon rates over that period. you can see that the growth/disparity, our yields are higher in that formation than boon yields, because even though funding issues have been largely contained since that july 26th day, we can still see that the prospects for growth may be reflected in these charts, as the prospects for growth are larger in the u.s., fiscal cliffs issues would make it larger. foreign exchange, mainly everybody on this post-holiday, light volume session, seems to have one eye on the yen. whether it's against the u.s. currency, the dollar/yen or euro/yen. both patterns look more aggressive on the dollar side. obviously abe as prime minister is going to bring along with him the largest printing press we can remember recently. and that, of course, will start a chain reaction and maybe other printing presses will run a little fast
